Visitor Safety Guidelines

Wear a face mask 
Staff and visitors over the age of 2 must wear snug-fitting face coverings over their noses and mouths at all times while on-site, indoors and outdoors, with the exception of picnicking outdoors at least six feet away from other parties.

Maintain a safe distance
Please follow directional signs and keep at least six feet between yourself and others outside of your party.

Stay home if you are sick
If you are sick, experiencing symptoms of COVID-19, or have been exposed to the virus in the 14 days prior to your reservation, please plan to visit at another time. We will be happy to refund or exchange your ticket, no questions asked.

Wash or sanitize your hands
Please wash your hands thoroughly and often during your visit. You will also find hand sanitizer available throughout our spaces.  

Travel light
For art preservation reasons, bags larger than 11x15 inches and backpacks are not permitted. Soft front-facing infant carriers and strollers are allowed. Wheelchairs, in limited numbers, are available for temporary use during your visit; to access a wheelchair, please inquire at The Frick Art Museum or Grable Visitor Center.

Be kind
We’re all in this together. Please be kind to our staff and other guests. By respecting the directions of our employees, you will promote the safety and enjoyment of all. Thank you in advance for your compliance, and for understanding that visitors who do not follow the Frick’s Visitor Safety Guidelines will be asked to leave.

Limitations on Museum Attendance
  • Out of an abundance of caution, admission to the museums is capped at 12.5% of capacity.
  • We are using a timed-entry reservation system. To visit any museum building, even if entry to that museum is free, patrons need to reserve their space. Timed ticketing is available for The Frick Art Museum Permanent Collection (including access to War & Pieces), the Maker & Muse exhibition, and the Car and Carriage Museum. Follow the links to reserve online or call 412-371-0600 to reserve by phone.
  • Tickets are available in 30-minute increments, on the hour or half-hour. Visitors may enter any time in their half-hour slot and stay as long as they like.
  • To limit physical contact between visitors and staff, the reservation system is fully electronic; no paper tickets are required.

Q & A

Q: Can The Café provide take-out dining options, or offer outdoor seating for social distancing?
A: Due to its small size, The Café dining room remains closed as we practice social distancing. Boxed lunches, pastries, alcoholic and non alcoholic-beverages are available for takeout Friday–Sunday, 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Snacks and non-alcoholic beverages are also available for puchase in the Grable Visitor Center Wednesday–Sunday. We ask that they be consumed outdoors. Additional widely-spaced outdoor seating has been added across campus.

Q: Is there a way that we can experience your collections and museum spaces, hear lectures, and participate in programs remotely?
A: Absolutely! Visit our virtual museum to browse the collection, download kids' activities, see the upper floors of Clayton, watch curator's talks, learn about upcoming virtual events, and much more. We add new content regularly and welcome your suggestions.

Q: Will memberships be extended because of the closure?
A: Your membership support has a profound impact on the Frick, especially during this challenging time. In recognition of the museum’s temporary closure, we are happy to extend your membership expiration date by two months by request. 

Many of our members have already expressed their desire to waive any such extension to support us during this time; if you, too, would like to keep your original expiration date, we would be very appreciative. This kind gesture will allow us to direct even more financial resources to ensuring the Frick remains a vital cultural asset for the region.

Please contact the Membership department at or 412-342-4086 if you would like to discuss your options.
